Sox & Martin Vs. Richard Petty - Superbird Match Race!
Step back in time to the 1991 Mopar Nationals and check out my Sox & Martin tribute Superbird as it takes on a Richard Petty tribute Superbird in a pair of exhibition match races at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio.
Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate
to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the
'71 NASCAR season that never was.
They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind
Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler
performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a
rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from
competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and
also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back
when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model
were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their
car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's.
Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get
built into a full scale version.

NASCAR Legend Richard Petty is reunited with his Plymouth Belvedere GTX on
the Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb
The sturdy foundations of Goodwood House are set to be tested by an
American invasion of NASCAR horsepower at this year's
Festival of Speed.
'The King' of NASCAR Richard Petty is shipping over from his Museum one of
the cars that earned him that nickname -- a 1967 Plymouth Belvedere, which
also helped to make famous the fearsome 'Race Hemi' V8 engine.
